pack of the tea. >> you clearly are making hay while the sun ships, and you're doing a brilliant job, with all the branding and spinoffs and things. how long do you think this is going to last? >> who knows, as long as people keep watching the show and then we've launched into our product. we've always made duck calls. >> just can go back to that. >> believe it or not, we sell a lot of duck calls. >> you launched the tire company last month, that doing well? >> the tires are doing well. the tea is doing great. all these products, because we're passionate about our food and our drink and just like we are our hunt and being outdoors. >> aren't you really selling a life-style? i mean, i think this is just bigger than a show or a part. it seems like a certain lifestyle that people are all gathering around >> i think it is. that's what people like about the show. it's authentic and our products are authentic as well, and so they know if -- they know we're going to taste them, test them and make sure that they are good, and we're proud of them. >> will you be tapped next for "dancing with the stars"? >> yeah, your daughter just announced today. >> she is on "dancing with the stars." >> got some fancy footwork.
